College, while easily being one of the most fun and exciting times of a young man or woman’s life, can also be one of the most financially stressful. We don’t always have the luxury of relying on our parents to help us make our way through school and out into the big, bad world, and when this is the case it can be something of a struggle to come up with cash while you’re also making sure to earn those As and be a successful student. If you’re paying for your own tuition, this is doubly important and can make your situation doubly stressful. There are a lot of ways, however, that the smart and savvy student can work and make money alongside their college career, and do so in a way that doesn’t actually detract from either. Your work and your studies can’t always be mutually beneficial, but college is one of the times when you can actually make this a reality. There are a lot of ways to make money as you’re in school, so that you can earn while you learn, and we’ll talk about some of the smartest things you do it. There are a lot of positions on campus and off, but whatever you decide to do, tutoring is always a great option. It’s something that will never go out of style, and there will always be a demand for a good tutor. There’s a lot that goes into this kind of work, though, and if you’re thinking about tutoring as a way to make money in school, you should consider everything about it. We’ll talk about some of the ups and downs of tutoring while you’re in school so you can decide whether or not it’s a good option for you.
Perhaps one of the best parts about tutoring while you’re in school is the personal reward that often comes with it. When you help someone improve their scholastic abilities, you feel really great about yourself, and you feel like you’ve really helped someone along their path in life. This is all very true, and as a tutor you’ll have a special job helping people learn better. You’ll also have the opportunity to connect better with the material that you’re studying yourself. Teaching is a great way to help yourself learn and expand your understanding of a given subject.
Working as a tutor can present a strain on your school schedule, however, and dealing with other students can often be frustrating. In fact, if you’re tutoring younger children then you really need to make sure your patience muscle is nicely developed, because you’ll be flexing it a lot. Also, the pay in the education industry is not notoriously high. Whether you’re an online tutor or working on campus, there’s a lot that’s rewarding about working as a tutor. Doing it while you’re in college is a great way to earn and learn and the very same time.
If you’re a teacher but have always wondered what it would be like to live and work outside of the United States, you can put yourself in a position to make that happen fairly easily. Teachers enjoy consistent work opportunities, and the tenure received after several years in the same district can make this sort of significant change a bit scary. But teaching overseas offers incredible opportunities for once-in-a-lifetime experiences. If you’re willing to make the leap, you can transition to a lifestyle packed with world travel, and immersion in new and unique cultures. Here are a few tips for finding a teaching job overseas.

Child care can be a very rewarding job or career. Families often need extra help and depending on what a family’s needs are and what they can afford, jobs can range from the occasional babysitting gig to a full-time live-in nanny job. Continue reading
Teachers are some of the most important professionals we have. It is their job to educate the future leaders of our country, but that job goes way beyond standardized tests and grade point averages. Teachers often spend as much, if not more time with children than those kids spend with their own parents. So it also falls on the teacher to mould their students into respectful, well-rounded contributors to society. That’s a tall task, and it takes a lot of work, dedication and heart to be successful at it. Deciding to start a career in teaching is admirable, but you shouldn’t go into it blind. Teachers do an awful lot and receive very little in compensation, either through pay from the state or positive feedback from students and parents. And bad teachers, whose hearts really aren’t in it, affect many more people than just themselves. So before you go down this road, you need to ask yourself if you really have what it takes to be a teacher. Continue reading
Let it not be said that teaching isn’t a noble profession. Preparing the youth of today to become the leaders of tomorrow is practically the most important pursuit that any professional could aspire to, and the idea of molding young minds is attractive to anyone wishing to leave a legacy. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that the job is all wine and roses. There will be days when you feel like a glorified babysitter. And you may struggle to find ways to ensure that kids are adequately prepared to move ahead in their studies and attempt the next grade level. Paired with a lack of respect for authority that many modern students display, not to mention their woeful inability to pay attention for more than five seconds, you may have a harder time handling this occupation than you imagined. So here are just a few things to think about before you take the plunge and obtain your teaching certificate. Continue reading
